This is a dark and beautiful retelling of Little Red Riding Hood by Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot. Warning. There’s blood. Animated blood. But just thought I would give you a heads up.
Yep, this video just about sums up Breaking Dawn perfectly.
Rooney Mara has been chosen to play Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. She will be joining Daniel Craig and Robin Wright Penn, who were cast earlier. I am cautiously optimistic that this will be good in light of the actors chosen to play the key roles. Not that they needed to remake an already amazing film, but the original has subtitles, and you know how it makes our little heads hurt to try to read subtitles and follow a movie at the same time.

Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, oh say, 1986’s Pretty in Pink, and you start calculating how old the film is, how old that makes Molly Ringwald, how old that makes Duckie and how Andie’s dad was that creepy old polygamist leader on Big Love. Then you start remembering back when you thought 9th grade seemed so far away…how high school graduation would never happen…that turning 21 was so far off in the distance…and you now realize that you are older than the “adult” in Pretty Pink(played by Annie Potts)?!?
Just me then?
Daniel Craig has been cast as Mikael Blomkvist in the upcoming adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’ve just started reading it, but I can see him playing this role. Please, dear lord, let this be a sign that Kristen Stewart won’t be cast as Lisbeth.
It’s only Tuesday, but I’m already in need of a little comic relief. Check out author Jen Lancaster’s condensed version of New Moon using action figures…and pasta sauce. Click here and you’ll see what I mean.
You probably know by this point, how much I love The Wire. It was dark, depressing at times and one of the finest television series I have ever seen. If you were a fan of Homicide and Hill Street Blues, you have to watch it. I have a friend who says it’s so good that you have to watch the entire 5 seasons once a year.
Michael K. Williams(Omar), discusses the role of Omar, The Road and shares how he was broke and living in the projects during the first two seasons of The Wire:
“But he never made much money, and was intermittently homeless. That’s when he was arrested stealing cars. “I thought I was gonna die soon,” says Williams. “My mother had taken out extra life insurance. She was like, ‘You ain’t gonna stick me with no bill, you feel me?’
Sorry for the lack of posts, but the pig flu has completely sidelined me for almost two weeks now. I’ve basically been stuck on the couch watching bad Lifetime movies and MonsterQuest marathons. It was while watching Lifetime’s, “Too Late to Say Goodbye”, featuring Rob Lowe and an overly botoxed Lauren Holly, that I came upon this video gem of a scuba diving cat.
I thought it was fake until I came across the actual story of Hawkeye, The Scuba Diving Cat. My bad. Check out HowStuffWorks for the whole tale of Hawkeye and his companion, Muttley, the scuba diving doggie.

I thought I had seen it all when it comes to the whole sexy Halloween costume stuff. But how wrong I was.
Didn’t think they could ever make a burned pedophile/slasher/murderer sexy, and I’m pretty sure I’m right on this one.
Dear Jesus, somebody needs to stop this from happening. Diablo Cody will be destroying some of the last good memories of my teen years by adapting Sweet Valley High for the big screen.
